Before it was known for wine production, California’s Napa Valley was known for its rolling countryside, dotted with emerald forests and freshwater springs, streams and brooks. Calistoga Ranch is positioned in this verdant expanse, offering 50 guest lodges spread across the valley. This sublime getaway combines rustic, country charm with modern amenities to create the perfect place in which to kick back and relax.
Al Fresco living
It’s all about enjoying the very best of outside living at Calistoga Ranch. Deluxe lodges feature outdoor sun decks with fireplace and al fresco shower, with a view of the lush green foliage of the treetops. Bay Forest and Oak Creek one bedroom lodges enjoy spacious, trellised decks with outside fireplaces, while Bay Forest spa lodges have the added bonus of a hot tub too. Two bedroom Estate and Meadow Spa Lodges also boast hot tubs, as well as more in and outdoor living space plus fully-equipped kitchen. Decor is designed to combine sumptuous comfort with a relaxing feel, featuring rich, polished woods and warm, soothing shades as well as original works of art.
Lakeside dining with a vineyard view
Calistoga Ranch keeps its own bees and chickens, and fresh produce is also grown in the on-site gardens. The ranch also uses top-quality ingredients from local suppliers, creating authentic, local cuisine that literally tastes of the Napa Valley. Overlooking Lake Lommel, at The Lakehouse you can enjoy a seasonal local farmer’s vegetable hash, housemade tagliatelle or pacific halibut followed by blood orange tart. The Pool Terrace offers light salads plus substantial sandwiches and burgers with views of the vineyard, while The Lounge is where you can sip a sundowner as the sun sets over the lake.
From Californian valley to African savannah
From a cycling or horseback tour of the vineyards, to zip lining through the forest, there’s lots to keep the whole family amused within easy reach. We also have a trail that leads you direct to a winery. You can even take an African-style safari through the wine lands, featuring giraffes, rhino and buffalo too.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
